Another examination in the ‘Clothes of the Common People in Elizabethan and Early Stuart England’. In this series of books reconstructions are made for a range of styles of each garment. The fabrics and materials closest to the originals still available have been used and all dyeing is with period dyestuffs using period methods, mostly at the reconstructed period dyehouse in the Green Valley.
For each reconstruction patterns are provided. A description of the fabrics used and photographs of the completed reconstructions are also included.
